We have never been disappointed the staff are friendly and welcoming, the wine is competitively priced and the... More

Held my 40th Birthday party at The Fox. The food was excellent (and I have received many comments to say so) and the whole afternoon was wonderful. One guest described as the best buffet they had ever had!

We have been to the Fox many times before and it never fails to provide a perfect meal for all occasions. My son booked a table for Saturday evening @7.30. When we arrived the bar area was already very busy and nearly all tables were full-best to book a table in advance! We had a warm welcome and were then... More

One of my favourite restaurants! Lovely staff and atmosphere. There is a wide selection of food on the menu. I would definitely recommend a visit either just for a drink or a meal. Families are welcome & they also have entertainment on!

Visited the Fox several times now & never disappointed. Great choice from an ever changing menu which is particularly good for a seafood lover such as myself. I had the mussels to start which were superb followed by the whole roasted sea bass with crayfish tails - cooked to perfection with a great blend of flavours. When you add great... More

We booked our Anniversary meal at The Fox on Saturday night and the service was excellent. We were seated on a tiny table near to the kitchen entrance at first yet when our large starter platter arrived we asked if we could move to a larger table, which was no trouble at all to the very pleasant waiting staff.

Called here on the way back to our hotel after watching the Tour de France, they had really made an effort with an outside bar area to celebrate the tour, inside the pub is very trendy and quite large, would go back there again.
